Victor Davis Hanson on Colorado Supreme Court Trump Ballot Ruling: ‘Does the Left See Where it is Taking the Country?’

Trump Derangement Syndrome became Orwellian with the recent ruling of the Colorado Supreme Court.

It approved the erasure of Trump from the Republican primary ballot in Colorado, by invoking Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

That ossified clause was intended to bar any ante-bellum federal officials who joined the Confederacy from again holding federal offices after 1865.

(comparing January 6th to the BLM Riots) That day’s illegality in terms of violence and death paled in comparison to the largely excused and exempted 120 days of summer violence in 2020, when Antifa and BLM engineered riots, arson, and death.

Their planned violence accounted for 35 or so killed, and more than 1,500 injured police officers.

Some $1-2 billion in property was destroyed.

A police precinct, federal courthouse, and iconic Washington, D.C. church were torched.

Mobs attempted to storm the White House grounds and sent the president into a secure underground bunker.

The attempts at illegality are astounding. I think our SCOTUS understands this.

"The justices, rebuffing an extraordinary request by U.S. Special Counsel Jack Smith, refused to effectively leap-frog a lower appeals court to speed up a final ruling on Trump's claim of criminal immunity ahead of his trial, due to begin in March."

The prosecutor wants to fast track the court case and not move through the appeals process, seeking to deny Mr. Trump due process under the law.

Regarding what Colorado did - you have the right to face your accuser in a court of law. Colorado ruled against Trump on the ballot minus a trial by jury, conviction of a crime, and sentencing face.

Kangaroo court system, and it must not be allowed. Because if it is allowed against him, it will be allowed against us, next.

Mr. Trump has been battered since the day he came down the escalator and announced his candidacy for president. Quite unbelievable. I have never noted such a coordinated and continuous attack.
